Four Benefits of the API + Dynamic Capture Approach: eDiscovery Best Practices

This week’s post from Jim Gill of Hanzo gives us more ways to “supercharge” SaaS collection with four benefits of the API + dynamic capture approach to collection!

In the article Four Reasons Why Dynamic Capture Technology used in Conjunction with APIs Supercharges Your SaaS Collection Process, Jim discusses how eDiscovery and compliance are no longer reactive endeavors. Organizations must be proactive in order to mitigate legal and regulatory risk and waiting for the perfect API for all of your data sources isn’t a sustainable option. Legal and compliance teams need a solution to capture the required data from the myriad and ever-growing onslaught of SaaS applications in today’s enterprise technology stack.

This is where combining the information gained through an API with dynamic capture technology’s ability to collect broad amounts of SaaS data provides unparalleled agility for legal and compliance teams when managing new data sources. There are (at least) four benefits of the API + dynamic capture approach to collection. Here’s one of them:

So, what are the other three of four benefits of the API + dynamic capture approach to collection? You’ll have to read his blog post here to find out! It’s just one more click!
